Drawing inspiration from its illustrious history and capitalising on a wealth of technological know-how, Panerai reaffirms its inseparable connection to the sea by introducing an instrument inspired by its ambassador and constant weight freediving champion, Guillaume Néry.
Available exclusively in Panerai boutiques, the new Luminor Marina − 44mm Guillaume Néry Edition is a radical distillation of innovative aesthetic elements, like the rubberized coating applied to the bezel, crown and bridge lever; the accentuated convex glass and the dial with an evocative gradient effect that emulates the shades produced as sunlight filters through the depths of the sea.
Recognising the critical importance of legible diving instruments, Panerai celebrates the 70th anniversary of the birth of Luminor, a patented tritium-based substance with luminescent properties, by introducing an evocative limited edition model available in 70 pieces, all with a 70-year warranty.
At the heart of this timepiece beats the P.9010 calibre, a self-winding movement measuring just 6mm thick, entirely designed and developed by the Neuchâtel-based Manufacture. It is equipped with two barrels providing a power reserve of three days and a rapid time-setting function that can be moved forwards or backwards in one-hour increments.
Water-resistant to 30 bar (about 300 metre deep), the Luminor Marina 44mm − Guillaume Néry Edition is equipped with a strap made from black recycled PET material with white stitching and a trapezoidal pin buckle. A white rubber technical strap, the very first to feature luminescent “Officine Panerai” personalisation, is included with each watch, along with a screwdriver and a recycled plastic box engraved with the signature of Guillaume Néry.
